A 15-30 minute walk will bring you up from the city centre to this classic view of the city in its landscape.

In the summer the meadows buzz with bees and butterflies and have wildflowers in all directions.

Accessible from Bath Abbey and the Roman Baths, via North Parade and over the Kennet & Avon Canal. It’s on the route of the National Trust’s Bath Skyline Walk and from here you can easily visit Smallcombe Cemetery and Prior Park Landscape Garden.

The National Trust’s Walk to the View will bring you a more leisurely route from the centre, taking in Sydney Gardens on the way.
